In addition to my art, my other passion is playing the guitar. The music of The Beatles’, Lucy in the sky with diamonds with its marmalade skies, inspired me in this particular painting.
Confetti Skies by David J Ansell
David J Ansell was brought up in the northern seaside town of Fleetwood in Lancashire. From a very young age he discovered that he had a natural ability for drawing. Ansell’s influences are the caricature drawings of Arnold Taylor, that he encountered on the postcards that filled the many gift shops along the promenade, and the works of the great Northern artist, L.S. Lowry.
David J Ansell’s paintings are drawn from memory and imagination and are a wonderful snapshot of a bygone era.
